Planet Positive offering
There is enormous demand for environmental efficiency in our industry. By default, the mining industry is energy- and water-intensive. We provide our customers with durable, energy-efficient equipment and services for a long life-cycle.
To increase the size of our ecological handprint, we focuse on the positive impact on the environment and people through further growing our sustainable offering. The Planet Positive portfolio focuses on the most impactful technologies (>100) in the company’s current portfolio, specifically responding to the sustainability requirements of our customers in the aggregates, mining and metals refining industries.
The four focus areas of our sustainable offering and innovations are in energy efficiency and emissions, water efficiency, a leading offering in circularity and safe operations. This is where we can create the most value for our customers.
